EAGLE TRAILERS, CAMPERS & CARAVANS 2022 SOUTH AUSTRALIAN MOTOCROSS CHAMPIONSHIPS, presented by AMX SUPERSTORES – ROUND 1 ENTRIES OPEN 6.00AM WEDNESDAY 30TH MARCH – THAT’S TOMORROW MORNING FOLKS!!
Entries open through Ridernet for round 1 of the Eagle Trailers, Campers & Caravans 2022 South Australian Motocross Championships, presented by AMX Superstores – tomorrow morning at 6.00am – with round 1 to be held at the Gillman Motocross Track, and will be hosted by the Motocross Riders Association.
For the 2nd year running, Motorcycling SA and the SAMX Committee is proud to announce that Eagle Trailers, Campers & Caravans are on board as the major partner, and will be joined in the naming of the event by AMX Superstores, and again, for the second straight year.
Also exciting is the Girls & Women’s Classes once again enjoying the support of Titanium Security Australia (juniors) and Butler’s Mechanical Services (senior), and we thanks them for their continued support of the girls and women in motocross – and if the Women’s Ride Days at South Coast and MRA are anything to go by, there may well be record numbers across the three (3) classes in 2022 – which would be awesome!
A full range of seven (7) senior and nine (9) junior Championship classes will be on offer, along with the 50cc 4-U9 Non Comp Class for the newbies to the sport, making for 17 classes of competition over the 2 days of racing at each of the 4 rounds of the 2022 Championship.
THE 2022 CHAMPIONSHIP
2022 is certainly looking to be a huge year with numbers on the up across all events, and disciplines, so far, with most clubs seeing more and more new riders, as well as some returning after a few years – seems coming out of COVID lockdowns everyone is keen to throw a leg over and have a ride – which is awesome for the 2022 Championship!
What is also exciting is the number of young riders who are coming out of juniors and will be looking to challenge the established senior riders, and word is that there are a few senior riders already looking over their shoulders at the coming talent – Sunday’s racing could be top notch in 2022 for sure!
In the juniors, there are more than a few names across most classes that are being spoken of as possible podium place-getters in 2022, with round 1 certainly offering up more questions and unknowns than answers if pre-season ride days are anything to go by.
With that said, the 4 clubs that will be hosting the rounds in 2022 are certainly going to be in for some great action at their venues, and they are venues that are going to offer something different for each round, with the 4 rounds of the 2022 Championship being;
|1||April 23 & 24||Motocross Riders Association||65 Wilkins Rd, Gillman|
|2||May 21 & 22||Riverland Junior Motorcycle Club||19695 Sturt Hwy, Old Calperum SA 5341|

|4||August 27 & 28||Keith & Districts Motorcycle Club||Andy Caldecott Park, Charles Well Rd, Keith|
It is exciting for this year’s Championship to be returning to Port Pirie for round 3, the first time in a few years the Championship has headed to Pirie, with the club doing many improvements to the venue in anticipation, and to all those who want to get some laps in beforehand, head up at Easter for their iconic Easter ‘King of the Gulf’ classic – with entries open as you read this!
Entries are also open for round 1 of the MRA Club Series that is being run this weekend – for all those who want to cut some laps of the round 1 venue – before round 1 – to see what MRA are going to have on offer!
